Amsonia hubrichtii 'Butterscotch'


Amsonia hubrichtii 'Butterscotch' is a blue star with powder-blue flowers and willow-like foliage with bright gold fall colour.

Blue stars are North American natives with handsome glossy foliage and star-shaped blue flowers. Amsonia hubrichtii 'Butterscotch' is an improved form with a longer blooming time with abundant clusters of small, star-shaped, powdery-blue flowers displayed on its ornamental, willow-like foliage. The leaves turn an extra brilliant butterscotch-yellow with bright red stems in the fall. It will grow 24-36 inches tall and wide. Fantastic foliage texture and movement in the garden. Easy care and low maintenance. Use as a mass planting or as a textural focal point in the perennial border or the vase. Deer and rabbit resistant.
